Hi, The risk of passing epilepsy on to your children is usually low. Epilepsy shouldn’t be a reason not to have children. Medical testing may help people who have a known genetic form of epilepsy understand their risks.If your is genetically determined epilepsy( means it should run in families) there is chance of transmission otherwise not.Discuss with gynaecologist.
